Workdays. A Day in the Life of...a Fruiterer and Truck Driver.
One of a series of work-based interviews about occupations in Australia, this booklet presents a personal interview with a man who has had a fruit shop and then his own heavy equipment earth-moving business. The following questions are answered: what the fruiterer and heavy-equipment operator does, why the person chose the field of employment, how the person found out about the job, what he does and doesn't like about it, what kind of training was needed, what the fruiterer and heavy-equipment operator does during a working week, and the hours. Cartoons are used to enliven the material, and glossaries listing 9 words for the fruiterer occupation and 12 words for the heavy-equipment operator are included. Although designed to be used in literacy classes with adult new readers, the booklets are also appropriate for use with elementary and secondary students in career exploration and career education.
